Simple things in life






It's almost going to be a year since I've restarted my journey as a student, and I guess I forgot how hard a student life can be. These past couple of days have been loaded with work and it won't be getting any easier until the end of the year.  I have very little time to even do things that I enjoy and that make me happy... and it has started to take a toll on me... I can definitely feel the stress under my skin every day. It's never easy to manage stress and even though I wish that I could escape to a tropical island... that is not realistically possible right now... So here are some of the things I do to maintain my sanity when I don't have to time to take hours for a bath or take a trip to ease my anxiety. 

1. BEAUTIFUL FOOD


The small things in life count and they can contribute to your happiness... 
I try to make my meals look very good... like instagram worthy ;) It's always more satisfying to savour a visually pleasing plate right! Make it look real good! I get inspired by a couple of food blogs or instagram foodies. 

2. KEEP CALM AND DRINK TEA!


I've also decided to take back the habit of drinking a cup of tea almost every evening. It relaxes me and keeps me awake at the same time! Tea is always good for stress. 

3. HAVE A COZY ROOM 


When I'm doing homework on my desk or if I'm having supper by myself, I like to lit my candles. the scent and the aromas are very relaxing. It also brings a bit of warmth to the room. 

These are really small things you can do to ease a bit of the stress. I have 3 weeks left of school and I'm grinding work like crazy but I have to remind myself to implement these small things back into my life or else I'm really going to burn out. 

I hope these small tips will help you!

Happy finals folks!

Spring wish list!

The warmer weather is slowly coming back at least here in New York... I'm not too sure if Montreal is still dealing with snow in April... Anyways, thank goodness for the sun and warmer days! There are PLENTY of things I would like to buy but unfortunately my student budget is currently dictating my fashion at least for this upcoming summer... But there is no harm in day dreaming right?! 

Here are a couple of items I WISH I could own... 


My friend told me about a pair of PRADA sunglasses that she loves but never showed me which ones... I'm not sure if these are the ones but I do LOVE THEM! I love the metal bridge and the cat eye look with the thick frame. 




I absolutely love this bag by Michael Kors.. It's really out of my budget but I think I could try making one for myself! I'm not crazy about the baby blue colour, I would probably go for either black or nude. 



I own two casio watches just because I like digital watches... they are easier to read :) However, I really love this Marc Jacobs watch. I think it's time for me to own a silver watch that is non digital.. I like that it looks large but not bulky. 


I recently bought a pair of boyfriend jeans but I think I will need to purchase another pair! They are very comfortable and quite breathable for summer days. I also like the idea of wearing them with chelsea boots or combat boots in fall. 

you can buy these at nasty gal


These shoes are completely crazy but if I could afford them I would totally buy them! Sophia Webster as truly become one of my favourite footwear designers; she's fresh and youthful yet elegant. This pair is eye catching! Very appropriate for the summer!

My list can go on and on but for now these are some items that have really caught my attention for this summer.
